Lead

Hazardous Waste  Lead is a highly toxic metal that was used for many years in products found in and around our homes. Lead is commonly found in items such as:
  • Bullets
  • Fishing sinkers and tackle
  • Shot gun shells
  • Some toys

Bring items containing lead to The Recycling Zone. Do not place in the garbage. 

Did you know? You can find a list of lead containing toys that have been recalled at the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission website.

Information on this page applies to households ONLY. Different rules may apply to businesses in Dakota County.
